  •  If Hansen is right, we've already gone over. (12+ / 0-)

    If the "400" folks are right, depending on where the concentrations stand today, we're about to go over or have just gone over.

    Want a really scary jolt, read the current (or it was newstand current a couple of weeks ago) Scientific American and its discussion of lost Arctic ice and methane release from melting permafrost.  If those guys are right, we are already in the "better be geo-engineering" phase of things.

    The best clue to me that people were starting to admit that things are real, real bad came with the recent emphasis on methane over CO2.  It's like people are throwing their hands in the air and looking for a quick kill while the real problem gets worse and worse and worse.
